Sir Peter Jackson isn’t the only New Zealander with his sights set on the Gulfstream GVI G650 jet. Christchurch company, DesignA Electronics, designs and produces a key component used in the aircrafts cabin management control system.

General Manager, Colin Hogg, was delighted to hear about Sir Peter’s purchase of the flagship Gulfstream G650.

“Knowing that a significant New Zealander could be utilising one of the jets that we supply a component for, really brings our work closer to home,” he said.

DesignA Electronics is under contract to the international business jet manufacturer, producing a key component in the innovative Gulfstream Cabin Management System (GCMS), used on a number of Gulfstream’s jets, including the G650.

“Our ‘Snapper CL15’ component is a module that is produced quickly and efficiently to meet demand. It is essentially a computer part that is vital in the functioning of the GCMS, which provides digital control of all cabin systems – from lighting, window shades and temperature to furniture and entertainment equipment,” Mr Hogg said.

The GCMS uses popular and intuitive systems from Apple (iPhone, iPod and iPad) to download an application that synchronises the cabin system. Passengers can create and control the ideal inflight environment to suit their individual needs. For example, setting preferences for different situations while working, dining, relaxing or sleeping.

“The cabin management system turns the iPhone into a master key to the G650’s cabin control, with all the required functionality at your fingertips. Our Snapper C15 board is a key component of the system, maximising the power of mobile technology,” Mr Hogg said.
